Thank goodness! Mom estimates we got 10" snow yesterday alone. She stayed home from work.

She also did all the laundry and wrapped all the Christymas presents. Then she went out and dug the silver macheen out of all the snow. On Sunday (because she has to work on Saturday) she will bake MORE bread and three more batches of cookies. And she's actually looking forward to doing it.
OH, still no stocking yet for me! And I haven't seen a Christymas present under the tree with MY NAME on it. However, I have been exceptionally good, and haven't climbed the tree at all since she decorated it, so I think it is perfectly reasonable to expect both.
